Overview

All universities in the UK are subject to regular reviews and monitoring visits from the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA). Our most recent review resulted in the following judgements in relation to our standards and quality:

  • Confidence can reasonably be placed in the soundness of the institution's present and likely future management of the academic standards that it offers.
  • Confidence can reasonably be placed in the soundness of the institution's present and likely future management of the quality of the learning opportunities available to students.

For further information about the QAA please visit qaa.ac.uk

In addition to the QAA many of our programmes are recognised by a wide range of Professional, Statutory, and Regulatory Bodies (PSRBs). In many cases, PSRB accreditation may lead to a right to practice a profession, achieve exemption from professional examinations and/or membership of a professional body. Such programmes are subject to monitoring and review by the PSRB alongside the QAA.

Many disciplines will also have their own PSRB who may accredit or recognise programmes.
